Question Descabbing after tonsillectomy

Well, I'm on day 7 now and am actually feeling pretty good compared to the last week. I'm a little nervous though about losing the scabs on the back of my throat. The entire back of my throat is white where the tonsils were removed, and I am assuming that the white stuff is actually the scab. I've heard that they usually come off around day 5, and I don't think I've started losing them yet. I've heard that when they come off that it gets extremely painful all over again. How late can I expect them to start sloughing off? Guess I'm just a little scared and would like to know what to expect. Any advice would be great! Thanks
